Fall Newsletter

Hello 4-H Families,

Fall is here! I don’t know about anyone else but it is my favorite time of the year. Changing leaves, warm apple cider, hay rides, and my favorite; COOLER WEATHER! As we get ready for the winter months now is a perfect time to start thinking about what 4-H project you are going to take next year. Just a few reminders: every club must meet at least 6 months out of year, all club members and club advisors must be enrolled in 4honline, 4-H members taking multiple projects please make sure you are registering those projects in 4honline and if you are not taking a project anymore take it out of 4honline.

4-H Super Saturday!

Lucas County 4-H is hosting their 2nd annual 4-H Super Saturday this Saturday, October 9th from 10:00am-12:00pm at the Lucas County Fairgrounds in the 4-H Clubroom. It is open to anyone age 8-18 and it is FREE this year. You do not have to be member of 4-H to attend so if you have friends that want to get a taste of 4-H then invite them as well. With over 200 projects available to take you might not know about some of the new projects (or maybe even some of the old projects). We are going to explore 6 different projects areas through hands-on activities. Some of the activities will even give you a kick start on completing the project. The 6 project areas include:

  • Edible Landscapes
  • Science Fun With Electricity
  • Seeing Through Graphic Design
  • Getting Started in Art
  • Cake Decorating
  • All About Dogs
